Current Activities:
The Group held an initial scoping session that worked through several scenarios of what the code should cover.

The Group has determined the final scope of the code, and a plan for communication and execution of the Code is being devised.

A draft Protocol has been created and is currently being worked through to produce the final version. 

Next Steps are to develop the communications plan, including associated practical methods of execution.
